Community Planning and Partnership Working

Hexagon Research and Consulting Director, Robert Stevenson, has had a long involvement in Community Planning. He undertook the first major review of the development of Community Planning in Scotland on behalf of the national Community Planning Task Force. The report, “Getting Under the Skin of Community Planning”, helped inform the development of the Community Planning Task Force’s final report and recommendations to the Scottish Executive.

Robert has subsequently worked with a number of
Community Planning Partnerships
to help them improve the effectiveness of their approach to working in partnership and delivering the Community Planning agenda locally.

Hexagon Research and Consulting has been commissioned to establish and run Citizens' Panels for three Community Planning Partnerships.
